    I know there is a Axeman forum but didn't anyone else notice when Gabe found the missing saw it was a MS170 with a 3 foot bar. I wish I could get a 3 foot bar for my $179 dollar saw. Must pull nice through the wood.

    i've given up watching that show....
    the staged drama for tv gets worse and worse with every episode..
    i actually liked it a few years ago when it 1st came out though..

    all these "reality" shows just keep gettiing worse..........

    It's like you can predict what's going to happen next because it is all stagged. I think that had the one guy really gone after Joe the yarder oporator there would have been punches thrown and some blood. I'm not saying that I want to see that, just that it is staged. Really, how often can guys fight on the job and not get fired? Maybe logging is different but I don't think that you can let that sort of thing go on in the real world on a dangerous job site. I can see guys getting beered up at the bar after day of being teed off at each other and getting into a brawl and I'm sure that yelling and cussing is normal but come on, you get mad at a guy so a fight breaks out. Either these guys are bigger drama queens than my ten year old daughter or this is just acting out a story line.

    Axemen is nothing more than a reality man-soap. I quit wasting time on it several years ago. I tried to watch an episode a couple of weeks ago and could only take about 5 minutes bf I started looking for re-runs of Golden Girls and Laverne and Shirley.

    same, it's nice to have a lighthearted show where everybody isn't yelling, plus Duck Dynasty has big fiery explosions for the hell of it

    That's the reason I stopped watching too. I loved the first 2 seasons, following that guy Duane Dethless. He's a riot.

    Yep. Duane's gone. Browning (who is a class act) has wisely gotten away from the show. Staged crap. The 'saw' sent down from the landing to the crew a few episodes ago was an obvious setup. Looked like an old 050 carcass or similar. No gas cap. No bolt through the rear handle AV buffers (and they looped the cable through that handle). Etc. That saw hadn't ran in years. As it was dangling from the skycar, the cable pulled through the rear handle (where it was missing the bolt)......................and the saw fell for 'big drama'. Nothing but a buncha staged trailer park yelling drama now. Pass....

    There used to be two other logging shows that were much better to watch than axmen but I guess they're off the air now. I liked Swamp Loggers and the show from Canada better. I think it was called American Loggers, must have meant North American.

    Well hell, I still watch it. But mostly for giggles. :msp_tongue:

    They are a bunch of whiney lil girly guys. And the staging has gotten rediculous. How bout the one a few weeks ago when the Swilly bear got hung up in the underwater cave. :hmm3grin2orange:

    i watch for the horse loggers and shelby stanga. i no most of it is fake but the thing he does makes the show interesting, the rest of them on the other hand are a bunch of cry babies. Duck Dynasty=funny good new show

    Shelby really tanked in my book when he 'felled' that old snag in the swamp. Two sloping cuts that met in the middle. NO facecut or holding wood. By the grace of God he and the film crew weren't smashed. He used his stainless Ruger Super Blackhawk as a felling lever after shooting the tree to 'cut' the remaining wood where it was 'hanging up'. Before that, his huge buddy fell off of the swamp buggy while holding that 066 (or whatever stihl it was). Layed his arm open on the chain. Sheesh.......:dizzy:

    i didn't say he was good im just saying his ridiculously stupid actions gives me a good laugh. and that was just one of his stupid actions. When burried his saw up under water and it stalled he seriously said it must have got water in it. Really of course it got water in it its just the stupid things he does that gives me some entertainment
